I have noticed that most of the time it is a young kid.
I sometimes just have an inkling, like when I can tell it is just too good to be true, you know? Like the girl who posted the pictures of jumpers saying that was her....
Well my first "lightbulb" moment was the fact that she was supposedly competing at that height in jumpers, but decided to come on a forum to ask for a critique...sure it happens, but not often.

2. The name, it was "horsepony" or something...I would have imagined it to be a bit more realistic or professional.
3. When the poster put a bunch of gibberish like "askjgjksdhgjkds" then said she put the laptop next to the horse and he typed with his nose. Things like that don't happen, who would put an expensive electronic next to a horses face like that? Doesn't happen.


I hope the mods don't get angry at me for mentioning anyone specifically, I'm just letting other posters see what I do.
Oh, not to mention, google has this nifty thing that if you save the image on your computer, go to google images, then upload the picture, it will find the picture's source(if it exists elsewhere). I did that with all three images.


......I have no life, I'm aware.

I do that all the time, but I am a photographer, we are nuts like that!

I don't know but that one about the Indian ghosts in the barn was pretty funny. Someone found that photo that she posted....Busted!

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

SEE? The thread about fantasy posters gets more press than a "real" thread. See why they post?

What gets me about the fantasy posters is seeing how good people, who have busy lives, try to help them and take the time to answer their posts with real, thoughtful, helpful advice or critique. These fake posters are really stealing time from good people who are kind and willing enough to share their time and knowledge.

Per this ^^

You don't need to save the picture. Right click, click on "get image location" and then go to images.google.com and click on the camera and paste the link in.
